Swan Derby in Lakeland Florida - A Free Community Event & Entertainment!

Dust off your hats, bring your family and c'mon down to Lake Mirror this Friday April 24, 2009 for the annual Lakeland Derby.

Lake Mirror - Lakeland Florida

With this added excitement just one week prior to the Kentucky Derby, you are going to have a blast watching the "Maiden Handicap Race" at 5:00 p.m., followed by the... oh, you can't miss the magnificent show of the "Derby Hat Contest" at 5:30 p.m., "Running of the Ducks" at 5:45 p.m., the "Parade to the Post" at 6:00 p.m., and last but not least "The Lakeland Derby", a race of ten beautifully hand-crafted swan paddle boats racing for the prestigious winner's trophy - What a memorable race to the finish line it was last year.  All I can say - we had a blast!

Annual Lakeland Derby

Wait...that's not all - Live Entertainment by the "Millhopper" at 7:30 p.m., children activities, barbeque, fish and dessert. A spectacular Fireworks show around 9:15 p.m. will conclude this free community event in Lakeland, Florida.

All proceeds will go to the Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine, a clinic that provides free medical care to the working uninsured of Polk County.
